Today began as a rainy, gloomy Monday. A Monday that started in complete darkness. It felt like I left for work in the middle of the night. There are many places I would have rather been on this Monday than at the office, but that's where I was, physically. Mentally, I often go elsewhere.
If work weren't an issue and I had an entire day to myself at home I would...
Pull out the fabric ink to print some fabric. I’m kind of obsessed with it right now, though I’ve never done it. I have all the supplies, carved my stamps and cut my stencils, but getting those designs onto fabric hasn’t happened.
I’d like to pair my hand printed fabric with this stack of leather. More bags, of course. My last bag was such an improvement from my previous ones, I’m eager to practice some more. Practice, practice, practice - it’s the only way to get better.
And while I’m at it (this IS a dream, I can make my days with as many hours as I’d like), I think this quilt top could use some attention. We can never have enough quilts in the house.
Maybe my time would be better spent visiting my vintage sheet collection? There’s something about this time of year that makes me want to pull them out for some new creations. Perhaps Ceci could use a new spring dress or Ava a new nightgown? Oh, the possibilities!
As you can see, coming up with things to do is never an issue. Fitting those things into my busy family schedule always is. Thank goodness for daydreams.
All that gloom this morning? By lunch it was totally gone, replaced by blue skies and sunshine. It turned out to be a gorgeous day, perfect for blowing bubbles on the patio after school- better than all those daydreams!!.
